Islam 101: Sharia Law

Greetings friends, In our continuous effort to counter misinformation with proper information, I will be talking about Sharia in the Islam 101 class this Sunday. Please feel free to pass it along to anyone who might be interested in it and might benefit from it. Description below and accompanying graphic attached. ---------------------------------- The Islam 101 class is offered on the first Sunday of every month. In this session, Imam Sohail Chaudhry will talk about Sharia. There are many misconceptions about what sharia is and if it is compatible with the society we live in and is it all about laws and punishments etc. Deliberate misinformation by some vested interest groups have resulted in some people falsely believing that Muslims seek to impose Sharia law in the U.S. Come and find out more about this topic and ask any question you may have about this topic no matter how sensitive it may be. The lecture will be offered in a casual setting, where everyone if welcome and questions are encouraged ! Please extend this invitation to anyone who can benefit from this talk and get an opportunity to ask any questions in a friendly setting. No prior class attendance is necessary.
